Ophthalmic diagnosis is an extremely visual process. This is particularly true of abnormalities of the ocular fundus, which frequently have a sufficiently distinctive ophthalmoscopic appearance to allow a precise classification on that basis alone.

Orellana and Friedman's Clinico-Pathological Atlas of Congenital Fundus Disorders is a collection of fundus photographs of over 50 fundus abnormalities seen in children. Illustrated with 236 figures, most in color, the atlas also includes histopathological micrographs, fluorescein angiograms, external photographs, ultrasonographs, and other ancillary figures appropriate to each disease, along with a concise description of the clinical entity. Key references are provided for each disease for further study. An introductory section briefly covers basic concepts of anatomy, pathology, embryology, genetics, and examination techniques.

The succinct format and profuse illustrations make this text comprehensible to the novice fundoscopist as well as the experienced ophthalmologist. The authors focus on classic features for each entity, with frequent clinicopathological correlations.
